Paint chips on wheels

The painted wheels on my 2013 Boxster have sections of small paint chips, looks like the PO drove on some gravel roads. Anybody repair small chips on painted wheels? Dr Colorchip tells me they can match wheel colors, so that seems a reasonable option. Any thoughts?

Thanks, Ken

Hello- Posting some pictures of the wheels will get you results I bet.

I'll take Cairo's advice and upload a photo -- little, tiny chips on the wheels. (Sorry it's so large). Whaddya do with this?

most of the spokes on all the wheels look like that but the fronts maybe the worse ones?

The photo shows what is likely the worst spoke on the car. Some have effectively no chips. As for front v. rear, I'm not seeing much difference.

I don't know how your going to touchup all those little chips and have it look like anything good?
if it was me I would do a sand spot primer the infected areas then repaint in base clear.

Thanks 962. That may be what I'll have to do.
